The Tiddlybot is the ultimate entry Raspberry Pi robot kit. This gives anyone the ability to build and then boss their very own pet robot!
The kit is a fun and rewarding building experiences as well as an introduction to the exciting world of robots. Made up of a set of wooden body parts, connectors and hardware, the included guide will enable you to simply create your Tiddlybot with no prior experience needed. Once built, connect your Raspberry Pi and battery and … BOOM! Tiddles wakes up – ready for your commands!
The specially developed software is pre-built and included in the SD card provided in the kit. This enables the robot to be ready to go, straight out of the box. Connect to any smartphone, tablet or PC then remote control Tiddles or program with our customised Blockly Interface. Included in the software are games that allow tiddles to dance, play music, and move around avoiding obstacles.
TiddlyBot is also a squiggly bot and can draw both freestyle and by coding. With the coloured pens included make some modern art! The included line following module can also be used to allow Tiddles to follow a dark line on the ground.
TiddlyBot is powered from a rechargeable lithium Ion battery (included). The onboard power system charges the battery and also powers the Raspberry Pi without the need for cables.
Each kit includes:
- Illustrated build guide and quick start instructions
- The Tiddlybot power and interface board
